Step 0 - Prepare Your Bundle

Make sure that your project is using at least rails 5.2.

We will use the will-paginate gem to handle all of the leg work in actually paginating the views. This document shows how to create a custom sytle sheet and us it in conjuction with will-paginate.

ruby '2.6.3'
gem 'rails', '~> 5.2'
gem 'will_paginate'

Other Dependencies

bootstrap is also required for this, so it is necessary to add it to your asset pipeline.

gem 'bootstrap'

Step 1 - Creating your Custom Stylesheet

/* app/assets/stylesheets/custom/pagination.scss */

.pear_pagination {
  text-align: center;
  padding: 1em;
  cursor: default;
.pear_pagination a,
.pear_pagination span {
  padding: 0.2em 0.3em;
.pear_pagination .disabled {
  color: #aaaaaa;
.pear_pagination .current {
  font-style: normal;
  font-weight: bold;
  background-color: #bebebe;
  display: inline-block;
  width: 1.4em;
  height: 1.4em;
  line-height: 1.5;
  -moz-border-radius: 1em;
  -webkit-border-radius: 1em;
  border-radius: 1em;
  text-shadow: rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.8) 1px 1px 1px;
.pear_pagination a {
  text-decoration: none;
.pear_pagination a:hover,
.pear_pagination a:focus {
  text-decoration: underline;

Step 2 - Importing your Custom Stylesheet

/* app/assets/stylesheets/application.scss */

@import "custom/pagination";

Step 3 - Use It!

<div class="pear_pagination">
  <div class="page_info">
    <%= page_entries_info @posts %>
  <%= will_paginate @posts, :container => false %>
